Imagine Communications, a global leader in video and advertising solutions serving the media and entertainment, multichannel video programming distributors, and enterprise markets, will be exhibiting solutions from its SDI and next-gen IP portfolio and delivering a presentation on the transition of media operations to generic computing environments at CCW.
Reinforcing its reputation for driving innovation in the media and entertainment industry, Imagine Communications will be demonstrating solutions that bridge the SDI and next-gen domains to help enable media companies to gradually and gracefully shift operations to IP-based environments at their own pace and without stranding existing investments in baseband technologies.
“Our ‘Your Path, Your Pace’ technology transition approach is enabling our customers to reap the cost and agility benefits offered by generic computing resources today and into the future, without sacrificing quality, stranding investments or introducing new operational procedures or requirements,” says Ramnik Kamo, Chief Marketing Officer, Imagine Communications. “CCW is a great opportunity to share our recent innovations with one of the most technology savvy audiences in the industry and to demonstrate how we are helping media companies optimize their operations to meet the demands of an industry marked by ongoing and dramatic shifts in video consumption habits.”
